Some people think that a dental implant procedure is performed purely for cosmetic reasons, however, Dental Implants can also have significant health benefits associated with implant placement. Strengthening the jawbone is very important to the Dental Implant.
Once a tooth has been extracted or lost the bone will naturally start to deteriorate. Fractures are more common, and problems with the surrounding teeth are more likely to cause your facial profile to be compromised with the bone structure beginning to collapse, causing your jaw to ‘melt’ into the neck. In many instances, the effect can be so pronounced, patients will experience pain and discomfort when eating and even difficulty speaking.
Placing an implant post actually strengthens the jaw bone since it encourages fresh growth to hold the implant post in place.
This is known as osseointegration. If you are experiencing these issues as a result of bone deterioration in your jaw, you may qualify to have some of the costs of implant placement covered by your dental insurance.
Similarly, patients who suffer from chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, thrombosis, COPD, GERD, and diabetes are more likely to also suffer from dental disease.
